‘We have had the Doosan PA536ATC compressor in use drilling large diameter service holes for Oz Minerals. The compressor’s compact size has allowed for ease of movement between holes and the performance and fuel usage has been exceptional. Our drillers have found the unit reliable and simple to use’

Frontline Drilling

"Western Air and their products are a breath of fresh air in an industry where after sales support is


When looking to purchase two new compressors having had IR’s and Sullair’s before, it was an easy

decision to make. Our key factor wasn’t price but support and reliability.

Gary and his team at Western Air tick all the boxes. Support, reliability, availability of new machines

and parts, a can-do attitude and price.

Thanks, Gary, for your constant endeavour to keep your customers 100% satisfied which

unfortunately today has become a dying trait”.

- Xavier Martinez, Operations Director at Frontline Drilling

Bullion Drilling

Bullion Drilling has being using Western Air/Doosan products for approximately 20 years. To say that

they are dependable is an understatement - downtime of critical equipment is costly so minimising

this is a core belief at Bullion Drilling.

The Doosan compressors + Western Air boosters we use have been a stable part of our drilling

business and have always been fit for purpose and well manufactured, I don’t think Bullion Drilling

would be where it is today without the year in year out reliability of this equipment. Back up and

service is impeccable, and their can-do attitude to supply hard to source parts and consumables is

second to none.
